Ravioli, OBO’ Italian Table & Bar
In a time when it seems like most of my friends are ketogenic-diet-this and paleo-that, I feel like a rebel indulging in the simple pleasure of pasta. On that carbo-loaded note, OBO’ Italian Table & Bar’s no-fuss ravioli ($12.50) makes for a tasty act of resistance. Plump, doughy squares of pasta envelop creamy scoops of ricotta cheese, which would be wonderful enough on its own. It’s the salty tang of black olive butter—the ravioli practically swims in it—and the sharp bite of fresh green onions, though, that makes this seemingly humble mainstay seem extra indulgent. Make carbs great again? This dish wins that battle. 3145 Folsom Boulevard, http://oboitalian.com.
